spots really back across the west coast. storm after storm is going to pound california, oregon, and washington state. closer to home, albany is seeing snow right now. it's lake-effect snow coming off lake ontario stretching all the way into the birkshires of massachusetts. so we are seeing some snowfall across the northeast. it is just like a fact of nature. elsewhere, we're going to see that rain out towards california continue to move on shore. we saw a lot of airport delays yesterday. also some mountain snow is likely. as far as rainfall totals, we are actually going to see in the next 48 hours perhaps more than five or six inches of rain, especially across northern california into southwestern oregon. seattle could pick up a couple inches of that rain as well. again, we're looking at another storm to make its way on west coast later on this afternoon. that one should be stronger than the storm we saw yesterday. here in the northeast with the gorgeous view behind me, things are looking fantastic near downtown looking at the christmas tree. lynn? >> thanks so much. >> dianne
, democrat from california. senator, it is great to have you with me this morning. >> thank you. >> just for everybody that's watching, i want to break down what the proposal is from the president that was offered yesterday. $1.6 trillion in tax cuts. $400 billion in cuts to medicare and other entitlement programs. $50 billion additional in stimulus spending. no real structural reform to entitlement programs. no spending cuts. instead, stimulus spending. obviously, the president knew that this would be an unacceptable first offer. so what is the end game here? where is the president's bottom line? >> listen, this is a negotiation. it isn't about the president's bottom line or my bottom line or yours. it's a negotiation. and the sad part is, that the administration, the president, has laid down an offer. there's several things in there we know the republicans like, and yet they refuse to lay down an offer. all they do is come out, and mitch mcconnell laughs, and boehner says it's terrible. there's a fiscal cliff, and this offer isn't good. show me the money, folks. you have the power. you

is california's proposition 8. this was the ballot proposition passed, overturned two years ago. what it says is that even though a california court said that marriage was legal in that state, it banned gay mrarnlg in california. now if the court grants that case, then it might -- might -- get to the fundamental issue whether states can, in fact, ban same-sex marriage. my predictions, chris. it's a virtual certainty the court will take the doma case. courts have overturned an act of congress. it's much less certain they'll take the prop 8 case and we'll only find out today which cases they're going to take because if they're not going to take any cases we won't hear about that until monday. all we get are the grants. no guarantee today but the justices are meeting in a closed door conference. these cases are on the agenda. so we may find out as early as today, chris. >> nbc's justice correspondent pete williams. for the record i would watch a show called pete's predictions. thank you, pete. >> reporter: you'd be the one. >>> next, we'll head to the hill to talk to members from both sides abou

but actually you can't tell the total number of votes in the nation until california gets around to doing it. you know, some states count them very clean and don't seem to have any problem. >> megyn: how about virginia? is that true of virginia. >> virginia, that has been true. when george allen was defeated for senator six years ago by 6,000 or 7,000 votes, virginia went right down, you know, they went back over that, i believe there was recount or reexpectation of the vote, less than 100 votes changed. it was pretty straightforward. new hampshire is famous for doing that well, too and so forth. other states have had bigger problems. >> bret: we should point out if we put that back up. that was the national popular vote total. that will pop up throughout the night as well. you will see the actual vote total through the night. these are all the states throughout the nation and there you see it as it continues to tick up and for us, after the iowa caucuses, the difference was added, 61256 right now so i don't have to pull out the calculator. >> megyn: didn't you get yelled at by math teacher
